We stayed at Full Note for 7 nights in January 2010. Arriving late at night the building from outside looked impressive. Inside its a bit like a back packers. Once you get over the shock of the interior and relax you are guaranteed to have a great time.
Rooms are small but clean. Heating is good. Showers and toilets pretty ordinary but fortunately there are some great onsens in the local area. Fantastic transport to and from the snow fields with Full Note providing their own bus and also a bus stop right outside the door. Great restaurants in the immediate area, and convenience stores at the top of the road make it the ideal location. The living/dining area is open plan with a great fireplace. Good breakfasts although usually a weird mix of Japanese and Western style... but that all ads to the charm.
The best thing about FullNote? The bar downstairs, the live music (jazz) and Torsan your host (apologies Torsan if this is spelt incorrectly). Torsan is just delightful. The jazz jamming sessions are something to remember, and the bar downstairs intimate and fun. Also has a games area as part of the bar to keep the teenagers happy.
Would I recommend FullNote - absolutely! Would I go again - yes (although I hope they improve the plumbing/toilets/shower). Its an experience to remember at a good price.
